Two whole days she had been traveling. She had left her town after the incident with her friend, the one which had ended fatally for him. Alex looked as she hit her navigator once again. For the last five hours or so the stupid machine was telling her to go left at every single turn. Alex was not a technical person or a car person. Her car hated her as well. The old, blue piece of junk she was driving, always decided to give up when she was in the middle of nowhere, with no cell signal. Or it was her cellphone which was in collaboration with her car and her navigator who just decided to not work. It had not been that way before, but for a year now, well since she had decided dead was boring, everything was out to make her already hard life even harder. Her hand raised again when the Navigation system now on a straight road told her that she had to turn left again. "I can't turn left, you want to kill me," she asked it before she slammed down with the hand. It seemed a little too hard as the device decided to just show a black screen. "No, no please don't die on me, I have no clue where I am, I promise I won't hit you again," she said slamming on the top of the machine. A small flickering of light gave Alex just a little hope that it would turn on again, but with a strange sizzling sound, it died completely.
Alex looked at the street she was following and drove on, just one way to go anyway. It took her another hour before she saw the lights of what seemed a town. Looking at the dead piece on her dashboard she smiled. "See made it without your help," she told it. She drove into the city, even if she had no clue where she was now, those stupid left turns had made it impossible for her to get an idea. She passed a few bars and a few hotels. Just as she thought about where she should go a screeching sound came from her car and it came to a halt. "Your not empty, I filled you up not even two hours ago, and I know you drink a lot but not that much," Alex said as she got out of the vehicle. She looked along the road not noticing a no parking sign. "Well you stay here and I go see if I can find a Car service to see what is wrong with you THIS time," she said happily she could see not many people close by. She did hear the sound of heartbeats and she was hungry. Reaching into her car Alex grabbed her purse and wanted to grab her cellphone which was not where she left it. "ok now is not the time for go hide and seek" she said in search of where it could have fallen to. She found it under the passenger seat and grabbed it dropping it on the seat as it shocked her. "Yes, I hate you too," Alex said as she locked her car and walked off to find someone to help her.
The stroll around town had taken up a lot of Alex her time, there were always so many things to see in a new place. And if she wanted to stay here, well she better finds somewhere she could hide from the light. Three streets left, and after one right, that is where Alex found an apartment for rent and she called the number on the board. Maybe it was the urgency in her voice, which made the woman come so fast, as within the hour she had her own place.
The day was like always long and sleep didn't take her easily. Another myth shattered that all vampires slept during the day. The hunger inside her was growing. The small snacks had been ok but she was craving for something more substantial. As through the curtains, the sunlight finally left Alex made her way outside and to the outskirts of town, like in most towns this was were the rift raft and the homeless lives. Alex didn't really like praying on the helpless, but well she did need to feed.
After she had taken what she needed from two people, a male, and a female, Alex walked to continue and find what she had been looking for the previous night. It wasn't that difficult, coming to, what looked like an old car service, she walked in and looked around. It didn't seem like someone was actually there, but she could be wrong. "Anybody here?" she called out and waited for an answer.
